A Renaissance Man


Robin Williams will be missed for the many talents 
that he generously shared with several generations.

He was a true Renaissance Man.

It is with a heavy heart that I join others in 
wishing both him and his loved ones "Peace".


Thank you for the laughter & the joy, 
Robin Williams.

  1. You chose two wonderful clips. Greatly saddened to hear this news earlier. I will always remember his astounding talent, the joy we felt through his laughter and tears from his dramatic work. He truly was one of a kind.

  5. still gutted. Dead Poet's Society had such a profound impact on me. And then, he could make me laugh harder than anyone else on the planet.
    I'm so sad.

  7. It was such a shock to hear the news early this AM, when I got up. I'm especially saddened because I spent several years struggling with daily thoughts of suicide until I realized I had a problem and got help. It's absolutely tragic that Robin Williams was too far down into the black hole for even a tiny pinprick of hope for better days, that this seemed the best, the only solution. I hope his troubled soul is at peace.

  8. Oh I know...it is so hard to imagine him being gone from this earth...we never know what someone else might be going through. Depression and addiction are two very sad, dark places to be. I hope he has found peace...finally.

  12. I was shocked by the news. He was loved by so many, me included. So sad for his family too. I hope that his death helps remove the stigma of mental and that more people will be helped before it's too late.
